Santa Claus coming to a Strata football box near you


Ho ho ho! Santa Claus autograph relic cards have popped up in 2013 Topps Strata Football. No, Santa isn’t one of the many backup quarterbacks this year. The Santa Claus cards are an extra addition to Strata.

One of the first cards popped up during a group break with Cardsmiths Breaks. Sam Smith, the owner, said the card given away in a random drawing to all the members in the group break.

The card is numbered to 35, and signed in silver ink with a gold star next to the game. There is also a red, green and white sweater as the last layer of the shadowbox card.

So what do you think of the card?

    Might be nice for children who find it in their pack, but other than that it does not really serve a purpose as (at least I believe) santa never played in the NFL. But hey, weirder things have happened…

    I would love one! That’s a cool card, and honestly, it’s one of the cards I would collect, as it’s a HOBBY for me, not my source of income. Let’s be honest, it’ll sell MUCH better than almost ANYONE in this year’s awful RC class.

    I saw this on Twitter and thought it would be nice for a child :) I know of a 5 year old boy who would LOVE to find this in HIS stocking :) He’s a great kid, you should hear some of the things he come’s out with, like just the other day his mother told him he better eat all his dinner and veggies and if he didn’t Santa might only bring him cola this year, and his reply ” Well that’s okay! He can bring me coal then I can be the conductor on the train and make it go fast!” lol Gotta love’em! :))

    Topps just continues to shred their last shred of any credibility. Now, not only are they passing off “memorabilia” that they won’t certify as being from ANYTHING anymore, but now they’ve gone back to the well of just plain making stuff up!! Anyone remember the Triple Thread John Henry and Pecos Bill cards?? $200+ a box to pull one of those?? Then this past year with the Allen & Ginter cards containing pieces from a Phoenix or the Loch Ness Monster??

    P.S – Amusing that neither this Santa card, or any of those jokes they slipped into A&G are actually on the checklist!

    I’m generally very critical of topps but as long as this card is an EXTRA auto in the box, I like it.

    So just FYI, I wonder how many cards from Strata are selling for $125+? That’s what the first Santa went for on the bay…
